While the One Zoom might not offer all the previously available One-series benefits, it certainly offers a lot. However, not at its current MSRP of more than $400. Like Google’s Pixel 3a smartphone the One Zoom also suffers from Motorola’s choice of a comparatively slow mid-range SoC. In return, Goo...

The Motorola One Zoom is an appealing piece of hardware and looks to entice shutterbugs with its four-camera setup. The mid-range processor, however, holds the phone back in terms of performance despite the good battery life and other positives.

AndroidPIT

With the Motorola One Zoom, the US manufacturer has delivered a great product that takes great photos for the price, is very durable and slim and does without bloatware. The wow effect is provided by a chic design and the glowing Motorola "M" on the back. But the biggest problem for the Motorola One...

This is one of the most stylish phones Motorola has ever released and it offers a truly versatile camera, plenty of stamina, and a wonderful big display, which are easily enough to justify the $450 price. If only Motorola had stuck with Android One and honed the camera experience with a focus on qua...

While the One Zoom might not offer all the previously available One-series benefits, it certainly offers a lot. However, not at its current MSRP of more than $400. Like Google’s Pixel 3a smartphone the One Zoom also suffers from Motorola’s choice of a comparatively slow mid-range SoC. In return, Google’s Pixel offers great stereo speakers, vanilla Android, and excellent cameras while the Motorola One Zoom lacks all of the above. Motorola’s latest One-series smartphone offers a decent and nice to look at OLED panel, a pleasant design, good connectivity, and decent performance.

The wow effect is provided by a chic design and the glowing Motorola "M" on the back. But the biggest problem for the Motorola One Zoom is not in the smartphone itself, but in the competition.

This is one of the most stylish phones Motorola has ever released and it offers a truly versatile camera, plenty of stamina, and a wonderful big display, which are easily enough to justify the $450 price. If only Motorola had stuck with Android One and honed the camera experience with a focus on quality over quantity, the Motorola One Zoom would have scored a stronger recommendation.

A mid-ranger with a varied and capable camera bag

from Stuff

Moto's all-rounder attempts to muscle in on the mid-range with a stacked feature list, great battery life and multi-purpose camera, but still loses out to more laser-focused rivals at this competitive price point.

PhoneArena

A very solid $450 phone, but it faces stiff competition in the same price range

from PhoneArena

It looks cool, it’s solidly built, its display is OK, and its camera can pull off some really good shots for its class. At a starting price of $450, it’s a very, very solid midranger. Unfortunately, the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are stomping around in this price range as well and they are a considerable foe.

The Motorola One Zoom combines a great camera, screen and battery with a mid-range-specced phone. Its camera is loaded up with three focal lengths and manual controls, as well as a capable Night Vision mode. It easily makes it through a day and thanks to that screen, it shines brightly throughout. The Zoom isn’t a phone for anyone who needs maximum power for their buck – for this, a gaming phone like the Black Shark 2 would be ideal. Neither is it the best-looking phone for the price: that would be the Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro.

NDTV

Offers flexibility for photo buffs, but at a price

from NDTV

The Motorola One Zoom is well built and reassuringly solid, but it isn't exactly the most exciting new model in terms of design. The 85 percent screen-to-body ratio and waterdrop notch at the front aren't bad things, but this phone will be competing with several others which have embraced slicker designs and less obtrusive front cameras.

Going big on cameras, not on price

from Pocket-lint

A fairly affordable phone with solid cameras, decent battery life, smooth operation and a large screen. The fingerprint scanner is poor, the design feels outside of the current One family, too, and there's stiff competition from Xiaomi. But, all in, the Moto Zoom is a series of successes.
